West Coast Current Marine Weather Observations

Dial-A-Buoy U.S. West Coast

Dial-A-Buoy provides the mariner with an easy to use system to receive current weather information for the U.S. West Coast. The system is accessed through a toll free phone number allowing the mariner to gather up to date weather information any time and anywhere they can make a phone call.


The Station List

The tables below list the coast stations and buoys along the West Coast of the United States. We have broken it down by geographic area to assist in locating the stations of importance to you. We have also converted the mixed character and number station id’s to their numeric equivalent to aid in dialing in the correct number.

We have started in Washington and continued south to California and the Mexican Border.

While not every station has been included, the list is comprehensive enough to provide very good coverage. If any errors are noted or if you would like to see a particular station included that we have left out, please e-mail us with any corrections or recommendations.
